“Chairman Priebus has expressed an interest in the position”, Conway said. In a New York Times op-ed published Sunday, Sen.

Jentleson said Trump should instead “take action immediately to stop the acts of hate and threats of violence that are being committed in his name across the country”. Some went so far as to claim Bannon’s appointment was just as bad as if Trump had hired David Duke, a former imperial wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, for the job. He repeatedly worked to unite the party behind their candidate in the 2016 election.

Ellison would have the support of Vermont Sen. “And the danger now of course is that he’s going to provide a home for it in the White House”. He publicly criticized some of Trump’s more outlandish comments and did not campaign with him.

“They have fabulous stories to tell, they’re good-hearted, and I think we’ve got a lot more in common in this country than we don’t, and you see President-elect Trump making that promise”. Trump’s son-in-law and top adviser, Jared Kushner, has also said privately he is supportive of that decision. Their selection will help determine whether the Trump administration governs like the firebrand Trump was on the campaign trail or the pragmatist he often appears to be behind closed doors. “I trust Donald’s judgment”.

“He’s very busy up there meeting with different people”, said Ms. Conway, who previously served as Trump campaign manager.

Conway cited Trump’s victory speech as evidence he was “off to a great start” in unifying the country, then turned her anger on Reid. Even as Trump’s outsider candidacy split the Republican Party during the primaries, Priebus was one of the first party leaders to accept and promote Trump once it became clear that he was the likely nominee. They hope Trump, a businessman with no political experience, will offer that possibility.

Reid has been one of Trump’s harshest critics.

“I am calling for responsibility and decency”. “I think we should put people’s minds at ease”. He left midway through his fourth term in 2001 to serve as health and human services secretary under President George W. Bush.

He later mentioned his conversation with Kasich, the governor of Ohio.

She reiterated that Trump still plans to get rid of the plan’s financial penalty for failing to buy health insurance and to now allow customers to buy plans across state lines. Trump tweeted: “The people of OH were incredible!”

Bannon’s appointment gave some establishment Republicans pause Sunday. None of them endorsed Trump. He cycled through three campaign managers during his White House run, creating a web of competing alliances among staffers.

A full repeal of the Affordable Care Act had been central to Trump’s campaign. Founded in 1846, AP has covered all the major news events of the past 165 years, providing high-quality, informed reporting of everything from wars and elections to championship games and royal weddings. In an interview with CBS, the President-elect said that once the criminal immigrants are out of America, and the border is secured, his administration will begin to deal with other undocumented immigrants, whom he referred to as terrific people.

Republicans also maintained control of the Senate and the House.

Trump is expected to make cabinet announcements for his administration this week. We are not going back. “Donald Trump’s not planning on that”, Ryan said on State of the Union. “We will all come together and be proud!”

He says he’s “confident Donald Trump feels the same way”.
